AMike: Most homes are built with AWG 14 wire which is rated for 15 amps. 14 gauge and 15 amp circuits IS current code (2005 NEC).
However, it's easy to check what you have: just look in one's circuit breaker box and see what the rating is on each circuit. If it was installed legally by a licensed electrician, the circuit breaker will be the rated amperage that that the wire can handle.
Upgrading from 15A to 20A is not just a switch of circuit breakers. NEVER UPGRADE A CIRCUIT BREAKER WITHOUT VERIFYING THAT THE WIRE IS RATED FOR THE AMPERAGE.
I meant that the 20Amp circuit should be dedicated to your Home Theater. I would not want other power drawing items such as outdoor lights, ceiling lights, etc. on that circuit. I'm not sure what the current draw is for a 2505 so you might be able to share some low power devices...but I'm not sure I'd try to share that 20A circuit with a plasma TV or a powered subwoofer.
However, if one insists on finding a way to shoehorn a 2505 in, you could probably put a 20a receptacle on a 15 amp line (so you can physically plug a 20A plug in). If it draws more than 15A, your circuit breaker would (or should) trip (dont be surprised if it does). This is far far safer than replacing a circuit breaker on undersized wire.
